Hi, appreciate if anyone can assist. I have a custom dropdown field which is used in multiple custom forms. I want to hide some of the choices available on one of my forms though to simplify the range of choices available for a particular form. However, when I hide a choice it does so on all forms not just the form I'm working on. I'd rather not create multiple versions of the same field but with varying list of available drop-down choices if it can be helped.
Anything I'm missing or workarounds??

We have the same issue and I ended up just having to duplicate the custom field because I couldn't figure this out...would also love an answer on this for future reference.
On the custom form that you are working on, if you scroll down, you will see a button that says "Add Logic"
If the information you want to hide is part of a section (this is the gold title header), then you would want to use the display logic.
Hi thanks, unfortunately it's the choices within a drop down field that I want to hide, not the field itself.
If you're looking for a quick solve, you may want to think about the logic of the forms as getting an idea approved and implemented in WF may take a while.
Can the list be broken into categories where a logic can be added:
If x and y checkboxes are shown, this dropdown displays.
Thanks and good luck!
I feel your pain 100%. Although not ideal, here's how we used the workaround.
Field 1 - Line of Business
Field 2/3/4/5/6 - Dept specific to LOB- which only display depending on Field 1
In our case - some Depts are only available to specific LOBs. So, for example, Client Services is only available in 2 out of 5.
We then added a calculated field that said something like 'Project Dept_All' and it was a combination of 2+3+4+5+6. That is what we used to report from.
Right now what's on my wish list is field logic by topic group - i.e.. the project type can be built into the routing and only fields based on the topic group would show. But that's a far way off I suppose.
